The Executive Committee and Academic Council of the Institute for Transnational Arbitration (ITA) are proud to announce that the second annual ITA Winter Forum will take place in Miami on January 24-25, 2013.
Building on its successful launch in 2012, the Winter Forum will provide a unique opportunity for the exploration of scholarly papers and probing debate with a practical slant of topical issues in international arbitration.
The first half of the Winter Forum will showcase two works-in-progress, encompassing presentations by authors, commentary by internationally recognized academics and practitioners, and interactive discussion among all participants. Our objective is to integrate the unique insights of academics and practitioners, encourage cross-collaboration, and promote the evolution of international arbitration during a time of global transition. After a conversation over lunch with renowned authority Gary Born, chair of the International Arbitration Practice Group of WilmerHale, the Winter Forum will feature a Tylney-Hall-style discussion forum, before concluding with a select year-in-review of noteworthy events in international arbitration.
All proposals must be submitted by September 1, 2012, via email to ITAWinterForum2013@gmail.com.
